EGHI Southampton Airport makes the leap to X-Plane 11!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

Following on the successful release of TrueEarth Great Britain South,  we have heard a lot of you ask for more airports to be ported to XP to further enhance your British flight simulation experience - so you'll be pleased to hear that we are bringing EGHI Southampton Airport for X-Plane 11 or OrbxDirect!

 

Located northeast of Southampton within Hampshire England, EGHI is a feature-packed addon with an incredible level of detail. From the brick-paved aprons, to the nearby factories, hotels and other buildings, this airport is a faithful replica of what you see in the real world. The airport is Q400, 737 and Embraer 175 ready, as well as supporting GA and private jet movements. This is the perfect staging point for flights to Europe, Cardiff or Dublin, or short GA hops to Goodwood or Shoreham.

 

Key Features

 

  • Q400, E175 and 737 capable
  • Super detailed brick paved apron
  • Fully custom modelled airport
  • Custom local road and motorway traffic
  • Fully blended into TrueEarth GB South
  • Realistic night, apron, taxiway and approach lighting
  • Many custom local buildings
  • Compatible with World Traffic 3
  • Realistic static aircraft
  • Ground personnel
  • Animated ground services

 

Please note that for the best experience, we recommend using EGHI in conjunction with TrueEarth Great Britain South. The scenery will work without it, however some users may experience the following:

 

  • Missing or misplaced forests
  • Missing or misplaced buildings surrounding the airport
  • Photoreal blending

 

EGHI Southampton Airport will be available to purchase from OrbxDirect soon for AUD $32.95 (approx. USD $24.35 / €21 / £18.50) - Previous buyers of the FSX/P3D version will get an automatic 40% discount.

 

Product page: https://orbxdirect.com/product/eghi-xp11 - You cannot purchase yet, wait for the release announcement.

 

Here are some screenshots from Emmsie and Jon Murchison - enjoy!

Yes it will be Mac compatible. Expect the usual lag behind for manual installers.

 

The Mac/Linux TE GB South releases are all finished and on the CDN, but our service provider is having technical issues propagating our files across their network. That's the truth of the matter so I expect that tomorrow is when the nodes are populated and we let folks know.

 

Also please be aware that the porting of FTX Central to MacOS and Linux is underway. We hope to have a unified launch scenario in a few months from now. It will take some beta testing though since we don't want buggy code on those new (for Orbx) platforms.

Do we get a discount if you already purchased this airport for P3D

I’m hoping it will be the usual cross-platform 40% discount.

I have all the UK airports and it will cost another fortune to purchase them all again at full wack.

Yes, an automatic 40% discount will be applied if you purchased the FSX/P3D version of EGHI. I have updated Aimee's post above to show this info.

 

The same discount applies to all our FSX/P3D airports being ported to XP11.

There are few other airports I was waiting for more than this.
I always loved the approach on 02. Especially after the release of TE England South, this will be a must.
Great news, hope it will be released soon.

Looking forward for the PNW airports to be ported!

When TEGBS comes to P3D, will there be a program of re-releasing existing P3D Orbx airports, such as EGHI, for True Earth?

If so, will there be a discount regime for owners of the current Orbx P3D airports, when the airports are converted to TE?

This is the airport I was hoping to get ported first. What about animations? Does XP still not support bone animation?

This was the last Orbx product I bought for FSW before me and that platform filed for divorce a few years ago, so I'm stoked to see it be first out of the gate after the release of TrueEarth for South England. Because of work, I've had no time to fly, much less download and install TE, and have been saving it for a little birthday present for myself in a few weeks time. Now I can get the region and this airport together. The discount will be the icing on the cake.

Will it be coming at some point though?

 

That is up to Laminar not to ORBX... you may want to ask the question to them...

 

Great sim however they are quite slow in addressing issues (see ATC, Traffic to name two really there from FS2004) they are busy with Vulcan as far as I know which is great, perhaps that may help with bone animations, for as much as that makes sense in a FLIGHT sim :)

Very good point!!! :lol:

 

It's too late to take it out of the scenery now but we'll remove it in a patch after release. I'll also remove it as a 'feature' from the product page and announcement. Thanks for the heads up.

There are already new industrial buildings on the old site, so we need to do some R&D on what is there now and update it in a patch.
